Discover the Dutch Wadden Islands

West Frisian Islands vacation

Each of the five Dutch Wadden islands have their own atmosphere and their own character. These lovely islands are a great place to pay a visit to. The journey by boat is already an adventure. And the islands are beautiful with great nature and deserted beaches. But wait, there is more. The Wadden Sea is ruled by the tide, by sand and water. You can watch wildlife. And when the tide is low you can go mudflat hiking or you can try to visit an uninhabited Island.
